Sweet little pumpkins all in a row.
We had a frost warning so I gathered up everything I could,
even the green pumpkins, they make interesting
decorations or ninja turtle jack o lanterns!
I'm not so sure about the one with the broken stem.
The orange ones continue to ripen so maybe the green ones will too?
I saved some cukes, green peppers, basil and sage
plus a little more flat leafed parsley.
The peppers are sort of small but not too small to dehydrate!
They are off limits for awhile for us anyway so dried and stored works for me!
I planted sweet potatoes in a porch planter strictly for decoration
and much to my pleasure, it produced! The smaller container
actually produced more, larger potatoes than the larger container.
I hear I need to let them cure or they won't be so sweet.
The directions said they had to be at around 80 degrees F
but I don't have anything that warm! We keep the house at
about 65 degrees in the winter.
I suspended some in a Ball jar with the roots in water.
We'll see if they sprout.
If not, we'll enjoy the experiment.
This weekend is dehydration time for my remaining
acorn and spaghetti squash plus anything else that
happens to be lingering by then.
